-apartheid movement. it's just not true. >> this came up in 2000 when dick cheney was nominated to be the vice presidential candidate. and he was asked on this program by tim russert about opposing even a resolution to call for mandela's being freed. this is what cheney said then. >> well, certainly i would have loved to have nelson mandela released. i don't know anybody who was sffor keeping him in prison. again, this was a resolution of the american congress, so it wasn't as though if we passed it he was going to be let out of prison. it had another provision. it required the recognition of the anc, which at the time advocated violence in south africa. my recollection is the reagan administration opposed it and i supported the administration. >> tom? >> everything was happening at warp speed. that's one of the things you have to remember. we were going from the pitch cold war to these extraordinary changes that were going on not just behind the soviet union but in the satellite states as well. then in south africa, you had the additional pressure, as reverend sharpton points out, that grew r

they forget that dick cheney wanted to put him on the terrorist list and insisted he stay there. that ronald reagan resisted. he said on the one hand that else in. mandela should be released, but he depended on a white supremacist government to reform itself from within. >> and the issue, mar where? >> when will you ever get tired of beating up on darth vader, who said nelson mandela is a good man. as we saw in the earlier segment, it was a complicated situation. the anc was a terrorist organization at one point. he has since said great things about nelson mandela. i like that what's been said about nelson mandela is said in the same way the pope said what he did. forgiveness and redemption. the pope's widely misinterpreted. and mischaracterized statements. it's active engagement. taking care of each other with solidarity and subsidiary. >> when you say about accusing darth vader, so to speak. this is not just about rhetoric. this is the policy that prevented the anc -- when they had the feet on the neck of nelson mandela -- >> he said, let's forgive. let's forgive dick cheney. let's forgive

administration branded the anc a terrorist group and dick cheney voted against a resolution to release nelson mandela. so this was all happening around the world. >> right. i think peter godwin's point that south africa's transition was facile traitated by the end the cold what are is extremely important but it's important to remember in the 1980s a lobl anti-apartheid movement arose during the cold war in which people in america said we're not going to see south africa in purely cold war terms. we're not going to sep reagan's pacic envision that the apartheid regime is on the part of the free world because it's anti-communist and the anc, they are on the side of unfreedom. i think the willingness to look at south africa beyond cold war terms when when the cold war was raging was critically important to the transition in south africa. >> when you talked with nelson mandela, did you find that he -- had he forgiven the west for, you know, having mostly for the most part sided against the anc? >> i think in my conversations with him, he forgave the west, and he realized there's a huge amount of

named dick cheney. even after mandela was freed from prison and elected president of south africa in 1994, u.s. leaders from frequently suspicious of him. during the clinton administration mandela praised cuba's communist dictator fidel castro and referred to libyan dictator muammar qaddafi as a friend. president bush said the iraq war was about liberation. mandela said all bush wanted was iraqi oil. now the flags in washington have been lowered to half-staff. the icon, whose legacy was at times considered a subversive threat. >> u.s. administration always seemed tread very carefully with mandela. and many officials who served as president throughout the years are even more delicate saying this is not the time to r relitigate those old conflicts. >> for more on the mood in south africa let's go to my colleague, mike hannah. he is in soweto, and it's great to sue you. how would you describe the mood on that street in that neighborhood this evening? >> well, it's a very strange mixture, tony. it's a deep sadness among many here. but there is also an insistence that there must be a c

stiff neck it may not just be the flu. that's the key one. >> right. >>> former vice president dick cheney is speaking out about the growing feud between his daughters. liz cheney, candidate in wyoming, made comments indicating she supports what she calls the traditional definition of marriage. that drew condemnation from cheney's sister mary and her wife, who responded on facebook. the former vice president said he was caught offguard. >> we were surprised when there was an attack launched against liz on facebook. wished it hadn't happened. do believe we've lived with the situation and dealt with it for many years. it's always been dealt with within the context of the family, and frankly that's our preferences. >> cheney is featured at a $10,000 per couple fund-raiser for his daughter in washington and that is happening tomorrow night. >>> the nation's capitol is brighter for the rest of the year after getting an annual touch of holiday glitz. house speaker john boehner flipped the switch on the capitol christmas tree. the 88 foot tall spruce adorned with
